“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Spent a couple nights here. Hotel nice and clean. Bar and dinner service are slow but very good and decent prices. Plenty good eateries within walking distance and can satisfy anyone's budget. Room was very spacious with large mini fridge. Bed was comfy but very warm (due to pillow top) and all pillows were very plump and firm. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Riany64

I am sorry service was a bit slow in the restaurant but I am glad you found the food enjoyable and well priced. Our location is very convenient for leisure and business, I am glad you noticed the size of our rooms and the amenities offered. Thank you for your business.

As always Holiday Express has all the bases covered for comfort and ease. Helpful staff was able to help us with a slight medical emergency. Lovely setting with many restaurants in the hotel plaza. I would stay again when in the area

Even though you may feel the hotel is in New Jersey, it is located a mere 6km away from Times Square in New York. You have the NJ Transit bus service operating a few minutes away from the hotel, that gets you into midtown Manhattan in New York in thirty minutes! The town of Secaucus is a shopping paradise for bargain shoppers, what with about 100 retail stores, factory warehouses and outlets located here. As the adage goes ‘There is something for everyone.’

Just 4km away from Secaucus, is the Harmon Cove Outlet Centre that offers a wide range of shopping, entertainment and 16 dining facilities. Department stores viz. Kohl’s, Walmart, Sam’s Clubs, Toys R Us and Home Goods are just a few minutes away.

Secaucus is a mecca for foodies...come and sample the wide variety of abounding seafood with the Atlantic Ocean nearby! There are many restaurants and fast food choices located just outside the hotel. There is a Starbucks café located onsite. You can also choose from Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and Brazilian cuisines as well. Feeling homesick and looking out for ‘ghar ka khaana...Choose from the Mausam Indian Cuisine Bar and Banquet or the Tadka Fine Indian Cuisine Restaurant.

The hotel itself has spacious guest rooms equipped with a microwave, refrigerator and a tea/coffee maker. You can stay connected to the world, courtesy the complimentary free wireless internet access in your room, as well as in the entire hotel. Free shuttle service is provided to wherever you want to get within 6km distance. The breakfast is quite sumptuous, but if you are in a hurry you can grab a pastry and espresso at the coffee bar in the hotel. You have convenience stores located just outside and you can pick up a few things to eat or drink in the comfort of your room. All in all, a hotel that gives you more value for your money!!

I've stayed at this hotel many times, as my company has an office in the same complex. It's basically what I want for a business trip: convenient location, clean rooms, friendly service, and a reasonable price. Several restaurants in the same complex, so plenty of options to eat without having to get a car. If you do want to go into Manhattan, a bus comes through the complex several times an hour and drops you at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in about 20 minutes. Tickets under $5, if I remember correctly.

Given the huge differential price between Secaucus and mid-town Manhattan hotels, if I were vacationing in NY I would strongly consider staying here and t aking the bus across the river.

I stay at this hotel when I come to the USA to work ( walking distance ). There are many other hotels to choose from also in walking distance including what some believe are more "upscale names" like Marriott, embassy suites. Hyatt. Cannot go wrong at the holiday inn. The breakfast is good. The staff wonderful. Rooms very clean, big and comfortable and it's a good price. The transport into NYC if you need right at doorstep right to port authority. A great option if you want to visit NYC but bit stay in NYC.

Room Tip: There are no views to speak of. That is not why you choose this hotel

For a conference, the organizers booked us at Holiday Inn Secaucus Meadowlands: 26th July 3.00 PM to 28th July 12.00 PM. The hotel was located at the hub of the business center secluded from local residences giving it a resort feel. The reception area has some air of luxury in its neat and modern layout and in its architectural and decorative accents. The guest room was spacious (more of this later!) and tidy. It provides the amenities described in their internet folio. Overall, I'm pleased. But here are my pet peeves.
1. Although their folio claims "Parking", it wasn't specific as to mean Valet parking at 15 bucks a pop or a four-block walk to a free garage shared with another establishment.
2. Upon checking in we found our room not ready. We have to drag our luggages back down to front desk to get new room assignment.
3. Our electronic room key was deactivated at no fault of our own. We have to take a trip back to front desk meanwhile holding our bladders.
4. The countertop nesting the bathroom sink is too wide for my comfort. One can't lean forward over the sink and keep his shirt from touching the wet counter. When completely dressed up and suddenly I remember to brush my teeth but forget about this dilemma, my neat shirt would end up losing its tip-top condition. Taller and leaner people may not find this a problem.
5. When I called for wake-up service on Friday night, the clerk was more dismissive than welcoming.
My rating for this hotel will rise once these inconveniences are taken cared of. I would like to credit the manager for accomodating my roommate's request for shuttle service early Saturday morning. He allowed the bus to leave earlier than expected so my roommate could arrive in time for conference duties.
Also, our free continental breakfast was quite sumptious with quite a range of buffet choices. The waiter service was excellent.
Let me add something more about the room. Other delegates were booked at the Sheraton Meadowlands, which is the actual venue of the conference. I checked out one guest room there. Ours at Holiday Inn had much more breathing room.
Recommend this hotel? Yes, I will.

Dear Atoybcl

Thank you for taking the time and giving us such detailed feedback. We provide valet parking as an option, we do share a parking lot with the rest of the surroundings properties that is free of charge.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the room not being ready, it’s not common practice for us not be prepared for a guest arrival, I also would like to apologize for the staff member that you felt was dismissive.

I appreciate the comments about the quality of food and service in the restaurant, as well as the size of our rooms. Thank you for your business

Where to start? We could not have picked a better hotel! It exceeded all of our expectations. Probably the best hotel we've ever stayed at - period and we are platinum members of the Priority program, so we had stayed at more than a few . The staff were amazing and treated us like family. A special call out to Lou Ficcaro, Natanyi Cabrea, Holly, Miss Nicole at the breakfast bar in the morning and Nelds. What warm, welcoming and absolutely phenominal staff members. They knew us by name & did everything to ensure our family had an amazing trip. Excellent cleaning staff. And the price is totally reasonable.The restaurant was 1st class. All up this hotel is where you need to stay while in the NJ or the New York area. They completely assited us daily on where to go, what to do and how to get there. Public transport (bus) is available at the front door staright into Times Square. It does not get better than that. We will definetly be back because of this facility and this staff. Thank you Holiday Inn Secaucus Meadowlands!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic. There isn't a bad room in the house.
